Cruise Finalists Announced For 2016 Travvys, Get Your Seats Now!

The excitement is building as we are just weeks away from the Travvy Awards gala to celebrate the winners of the premier awards show in the travel industry. The award ceremony will be held Wednesday, Jan. 6 at New York City’s Gotham Hall.

For this year's Travvys we have expanded the number of categories and witnessed an overwhelming turnout from travel agent voters. More than 39,000 agents and travel professionals voted this year, a 20 percent increase in voters from the inaugural event in 2015.

One of the biggest changes for the ceremony this year is that all award winners will be announced for the first time live at the gala. One of the closest votes also was one of the more hotly contested categories, with the biggest names in the cruise industry vying for the title of Best Cruise Line Overall.

Royal Caribbean, Celebrity and Norwegian Cruise Line are the three finalists, just barely edging a number of other worthy competitors.

Royal Caribbean and Norwegian are also among the top finishers for Best Contemporary Cruise Line and Best Family Cruise Line along with MSC Cruises, who is also hoping for a big win for the MSC Divina in the Best Large Cruise Ship category.

See who takes home the coveted statuettes at the 2016 Travvy Awards.  

The gala will precede the New York Times Travel Show, so if you’re in town for the show you won’t want to miss one of the biggest nights in travel. Come network at our cocktail reception, get your picture taken on the red carpet, enjoy a lavish dinner and celebrate with the industry’s winners.

If you didn’t attend last year’s gala, see what you missed here.  And get ready, as travAlliancemedia CEO Mark Murphy says the show promises to once again pack a year's supply of watercooler buzz for the industry.

Make sure you grab your seat or table now — the event is sure to sell out, with only limited seating still available. Pricing for the remaining tickets will increase on Dec. 20, so make sure you act now to get your favorite travel professional a holiday gift that will let them network with the industry’s elite stars.
